The unfortunate reality is that the LGBTQ community has long faced significant discrimination. This was perhaps best exemplified by the fact that gay marriage was not even legal in all 50 states up until 2015.

But that has changed now, and gay couples can get married in any state that they would like. Does this mean that discrimination toward this group is coming to an end? Or do people within this community still feel like they face consistent discrimination?

It is well known that money causes a lot of divorce cases. Some have even gone so far as to say that most divorces happen because of money or financial pressure. And it is certainly clear that money plays a big role in the property division process.

Parents are legally required to provide for their children the necessities they require to thrive in life. In an event of a divorce or separation, the family court may direct the non-custodial parent to pay child support to the custodial parent.
